    Default Absolutely nobody at Hennops 4x4 route today?

    Today (Sunday, 8 Jan) my wife and I headed to Hennops, imagining that the incredible amount of rain that Gauteng has had in the past week would make for a fun and challenging off-road experience.

    I was surprised to, around 12:00, find that there was not a single other off-roader there, and that there had been none all day so far.

    Everybody afraid of the water and mud?? The river was pretty full, but by no means flooded.

    We ended up not doing the trail, didn't think it's safe to be literally the only vehicle on the trail, much fun as it could have been to have the run of the place.

    The other 10 guys who was there before you also left thinking they're not going to do it alone.

    But seriously. I also don't want to go alone. We should post more on the forum if we have plans to go and get some buddies to join. I will really consider going if i know others will be there.

    Drove past there just after 12h00 and wondered why it looked so quiet.

    It was a spur-of-the-moment thing, I was hoping that the water / mud would be terrifically challenging.
    I'll definitely post here next time before I go!

    Agreed...
